Sportswoman Ellyse Perry, 25, had a pretty top-notch weekend.
First, she hit the winning runs for the Sydney Sixers in the Women’s Big Bash League game against the Perth Scorchers at the SCG, then she got married.
Perry wed ACT Brumbies player Matt Toomua, creating an official sporting power couple and securing the genetically blessed futures of any offspring.
The couple had been engaged for 16 months before they found time in their busy sporting schedules to make it official.
With Perry on the national cricket and soccer teams and Toomua preparing for his last season with the Brumbies before beginning his career in the UK with the Leicester Tigers, it’s amazing they were able to plan a wedding at all.
The couple will move to England at the end of next year, but Perry intends to continue her involvement with the Australian cricket and soccer leagues.
